Take care and stay safe from Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We have been witnessing the outbreak and fast and furious spreading of Coronavirus (COVID-19) that caused many casualties around the world in most affected areas, starting from China, and currently having its worst effects in Italy and Spain.
Many sport objects have been closed and competitions postponed; many flights canceled, and many countries are having the measures of self-isolation or quarantine, in order to protect their most vulnerable citizens and curb the number of infected people.
Social, and inevitably, the economic picture has been changed over the course of a very short time and we should be careful until we win the invisible enemy.
Following the recommendation of the World Health Organization, it is essential to protect ourselves and especially take care not to convey viruses, even if we do not feel or see any symptoms (high body temperature, sneezing or coughing).
It is highly recommended not fear, but to act responsibly and do the following:
Wash your hands frequently:
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
Maintain social distancing:
Maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth:
Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth.
Practice respiratory hygiene:
This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
We highly recommend, being aware of the situation and especially in the future, to lead a healthy lifestyle: exercise more, do sports, practice a balanced diet, take care of a mental hygiene and practice gratitude.
Take care, stay safe, and we hope this soon will be in the past.
